There is one bear where hibernation is not part of an annual hibernation ritual: the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. Many people don’t realize that the National Lakeshore is open year-round. Word to the wise: if you miss a visit in winter, you are missing out on a remarkable experience.
So many of us think of Traverse City as a warm-weather destination, a place of golden beaches, blue waters, and green forests. But here’s a little secret…winter up north is gorgeous too. You can hit the ski runs, snowshoe or hike through the woods, or just curl up with a cozy glass of wine and watch the snowfall.
Pride month is a one-month event, but supporting LGBTQ+ run businesses happens year-round for the LGBTQ+ community and allies alike. A candy shop, an art gallery, and a restaurant in Traverse City – all three are local businesses that are LGBTQ+ owned. We sat down and chatted with the owners to learn about how they followed their passion, and how they proudly fly the Pride flag.

Do you après-ski? Like many skiing destinations around the world, après-ski in northern Michigan is as much a part of the skiing culture as skiing itself. From sipping craft beverages in igloos or heated tents, to swapping out your skis for a snow tube or a pair of ice skates, here are five activities for those hours when you’re not on the slopes.
Doubtful you will find a more unique story for the start of a premier family ski destination than you will find at Crystal Mountain. It began as a high school class challenge to find the best location for a ski hill. From that challenge in 1956, Buck Hills opened with a single tow rope powered by an old pickup truck engine. That little engine-run hill morphed into a community ski hill, that later morphed into a full-service family run resort known today as Crystal Mountain.
Here in Traverse City, we are all about the vino. We’re also all about girl power, which is why we sat down with two of the leading women in wine in northern Michigan—Marie-Chantal Dalese, President and CEO of Chateau Chantal, and Sherri Fenton, Manager Owner of Black Star Farms—to chat about the industry…and get recs for our next favorite vintage!
